Praying to the Birds

“I pray to the birds because they remind me of what I love rather than what I fear. And at the end of my prayers, they teach me how to listen.” –Terry Tempest Williams

I mentioned The Solace of Open Spaces and when I was looking for quotes I was then reminded of Williams memoir of the women in her family: Refuge.  Praying to the birds makes much more sense to me than praying to an invisible entity. The birds answer back immediately, too.

About Laura

When my nest emptied I moved from the big city to a little big town to tend to a ramshackle yellow house on the edge of town. These are my Yellow House Days.
